Talk Dirty to Me by Michelle Miles
Shy girls need to talk dirty too…
The first in the Coffee House Chronicles
Commitment-shy Claudia has found the perfect man. He never leaves his dirty socks in the living room floor, eats all the cookies, or leaves the toilet seat up.

And, as Trixie, she’s been talking dirty to him every night for the last week. “Jack” calls the Talk Dirty To Me phone sex line nightly just to talk to Trixie. She loves his silky voice and he has a way with words that lights her fire, leaving her hungry for more. Then Claudia meets the tall, striking Dr. Blake Marsh, a man with a familiar voice she can’t quite place. After spending time with Blake (and her nightly calls suspiciously stop), she begins to suspect he is Jack. Now that she’s falling for the sexy doctor, can she prove he really is the bad boy on the other end of the phone?

A Night to Surrender (Spindle Cove, #1) by Tessa Dare
Welcome to Spindle Cove, where the ladies with delicate constitutions come for the sea air, and men in their prime are... nowhere to be found. Or are they?Spindle Cove is the destination of choice for certain types of well-bred young ladies: the painfully shy, young wives disenchanted with matrimony, and young girls too enchanted with the wrong men; it is a haven for those who live there. Victor Bramwell, the new Earl of Rycliff, knows he doesn't belong here. So far as he can tell, there's nothing in this place but spinsters... and sheep. But he has no choice, he has orders to gather a militia.

Susanna has no use for aggravating men; Bram has sworn off interfering women. The scene is set for an epic battle... but who can be named the winner when both have so much to lose?

Wallbanger (Cocktail, #1) by Alice Clayton
The first night after Caroline moves into her fantastic new San Francisco apartment, she realizes she's gaining an intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy's athletic prowess, she can hear not just his bed banging against the wall but the ecstatic response of what seems (as loud night after loud night goes by) like an endless parade of women. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed dating hiatus, and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. The tension between them is as thick as the walls are thin, and the results just as mixed. Suddenly, Caroline is finding she may have discovered a whole new definition of neighborly...In a delicious mix of silly and steamy, Alice Clayton dishes out a hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight...

A Master’s in Chick Lit -
"by the second semester, I was starting to understand what the program wanted: plain, unadorned sentences, no clichés, nothing too funny and easy on the plot."". The fast-talking agents were like heathens in a church, swilling the holy water. Basically they all said the same thing: Writers need a distinctive voice. Also stuff needs to happen; you have to have a plot. And by the way, short story collections sell about as well as potato peelings in Idaho. The fact is, you need a novel.""Each writer enters into the craft with a specific strength. ... Eventually, though, we must embrace the gifts that enticed us into being writers in the first place."
